Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

ParaGard IUD, what do other mom's think of it?

1 answers
I have my ParaGaurd IUD in. It still causes me pain here and there. Does anybody else have an IUD? Does it give you problems? My doctor told me that it's impossible to get pregnant with it in, but I am now hearing of cases with women getting pregnant/miscarriages/ect. Any thoughts?

i had the mirena iud for 5 years, no problems whatsoever. and i think the only form of birth control that is 100% effective is abstinence. i know with the mirena, i know people who have gotten pregnant. and i think it could affect your fertility if you get pregnant while you have it. but i've never heard of paragard.
